Seacrest interviews Rancic during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her controversial red carpet statement in which she says actress Zendaya’s dreadlocks lookes like she might smell of patchouli oil and weed, causing cast members Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin to quit The Fashion Police.
It’s kind of crazy. Look, it was a tough season to do, obviously without Joan Rivers there. She was the driving forced behind Fashion Police. It just didn’t work. There were all sorts of issues right from the beginning. Then when the whole incident happened with the Oscars show obviously everything imploded form that point on. It’s been sad to watch and it’s been really hard to live through. The past six weeks have been very tough for all of us.
Honestly, you’d have to ask her [Kelly Osbourne] I don’t know [why she quit]. I haven’t spoken to Kelly since the night that show aired. She and I got on the phone and I was like, ‘Kelly what’s going on?’ And she’s like, ‘I don’t know’. I’ve known Kelly a long time, so obviously she was being very friendly and supporting that night. Then, everything just went crazy from there.
